holy baby shit....global diaper output at risk
[link to worldnews.nbcnews.com]

OSAKA — Explosions at a chemical plant in Hyogo Prefecture on Saturday killed a firefighter and injured dozens of people, the Japan Times reported, citing local fire department and police officials said. Global production of diapers could be affected because the plant made a key ingredient in a resin used in them, Japanese media reported.

No problem.. I use cloth and sew them myself. I suggest those who can't do without disposables look into at least having flats or prefolds around just incase.

It is disturbing that sometimes a single factory can significantly effect the availability of things we have come to rely on. It can take years to replace a factory, too.

What if the diapers are radioactive from Fuk-u-shima? Maybe its a good thing the plant burnt down.

Re: holy baby shit....global diaper output at risk
They can go back to using cloth diapers and rubber panties over them. Disposable diapers have made women lazy. In the fifties, children were potty trained at a year old. It was that way until disposable diapers came along. Now the average child is potty trained at four years old. Schools aren't allowing children in unless they are fully potty trained.

Re: holy baby shit....global diaper output at risk
Believe it or not - we all got along just fine with cotton diapers that were washed, sterilized and reused over and over again. Most people used diaper services that collected the dirty diapers (stored in a disinfectant liquid) twice a week and delivered your fresh new diapers back to you. You got the diapers your baby started out with (new ones) and never used any others than the one your child had dirtied. The didn't co-mingle them.

Some brave mothers would actually do their diapers at home: first in a washing machine in hot water, bleach and detergent. Then rinsed, and spun dry and then put into a kettle with a pressure cooker type lid and pressure steamed for 20 minutes. Then washed again in just regular Dreft or Ivory detergent (both safe for baby skin, multiple rinses, and then spun and dried. Well to do house holds had the maids iron their diapers - poorer homes without help did not usually bother. (Ironed and monogrammed diapers on your baby were a quick way to estimate the father and mother's social and economic status - much more accurately than a Gucci outfit is today!)

It would NOT kill modern women to go back to doing the diapers at home. It's not that difficult save for buying a big pressure canner and sterilizing the diapers in the high pressure steam for a few minutes. The double wash was easy. The solution they soaked in before being washed dissolved most of the solids and with a pre-wash cycle, any remaining wash dumped down the drain with enough bleach to kill anything in it.

This method worked for generations and today in NYC and LA and SF, the wealthier moms still use cotton or linen diapers and wouldn't think of putting a plastic diaper on their little darlings!

Oh, for full time house hold help that would gladly do such chores as diaper laundry for forty or fifty bucks a week! You 30-somethings with babies don't know how much easier the help made having a child!

I'm one of those thirty something parents and I wasn't looking forward to all of the above should I have to end up using cloth.

We should probably switch to cloth anyway, as it's better for the environment, cheaper etc., but I doubt I could convince my wife to do it.

 Quoting: capperho

agreed, apart from the 'nothing to do but...'

there is 'nothing' about it, lets get that straight

babies dont just disappear when parents go off to work - someone else takes care of them and does the nappy duty, which wouldnt include boil washing cloth nappies. nurserys demand disposables

disposable nappies are a godsend, hence their popularity. do the cloth nappy evangelists consider the sheer amount of chemicals and water and energy required to get a nappy clean? babies take an environment toll whatever the option you choose, dont kid yourself

are other aspects of your life stuck in the 50s? no, you probably drive a 4x4 instead of 'doing the right thing' and walking, like 50s mothers did, eh?

(and im a mother before anyone starts up)

as for claiming most kids arent potty trained til 4. rubbish!

It isn't really fail to have a discussion.

It's quite natural to move on to the topic of using cloth diapers when discussing a possible shortage of disposables.

It's also easy enough to move on to the discussion of disposable vs. non-disposable; effects on environment, cost, time, etc.

Every debate will involve criticism.
